The Pro Wakeboard Tour VIP Experience

VIP WinnersAcworth, GA – A solid boat set last Thursday with VIP winner, Anthony Kennedy, marked the conclusion of our AmbushBoardCo.com/BuyWake.com “Pro Wakeboard Tour VIP Weekend” contest.

Anthony’s VIP weekend started inside Ambush on Friday, May 18 when he was chosen as our PWT VIP among many other hopefuls who entered the sweepstakes by checking in via Foursquare at The Shop at 7:00 PM.

“I was super stoked to win, just to to be going,” Anthony said. “I missed it last year so I wanted to make sure there was no way I was going to miss it this year.”

BT and AntAnthony and his girlfriend, Alli, spent the following Saturday mingling with wakeboarding’s elite and even scored a private tour on one of the five Nautique G23s in existence.  The long day ended that evening in downtown Acworth where Anthony was able to snag a picture with BuyWake.com Pro Rider, Harley Clifford moments before he hit the podium to claim his victory.

Get a Grip | Wakeboard Handles

Wakeboard handles are like car tires; they provide grip, are a main source of control, and eventually wear out. Do yourself a favor this Spring and put that nasty thing you’ve been riding where it belongs…on the tree next to the trampoline or on the winch.

Often times customers ask me what makes a wakeboard handle a “wakeboard” handle. Well, there are a few unique features wakeboard handles have that other slalom, trick, jump, and generic price-point handles don’t include. For example wakeboarding handles, like wakeboarding ropes, are non-stretch. They are usually between 15 and 17 inches wide to accommodate for handle passes. This is typically much wider than a waterski handle. Wakeboard handles can also be purchased with smaller “wrap” handles that allow you to do wrapped tricks while generic rope & handle combos will not include this. Finally, there’s grip. Wakeboard handles these days are often made from soft materials like as foam and cloth to provide a more comfortable grip. Since slalom skiing, bare-footing, and other watersports usually require 15+ mph more speed than wakeboarding, handles for these watersports are usually made out of rubber to accomodate for the punishing force of the water at higher speeds.

Josh Palma GoPro Edit via Alliance Wake

Winter has its grip on most of the Northern Hemisphere and if your like us, were jonesi’n for sunshine and 85 degree weather. So until June we will have to live vicariously through the guys on our pro team.

This video captures what it would be like riding 5 ft. behind a professional wakeboarder…an angle used in abundance for the first time in the classic Bump Films video “Free For All”.

Watch the video on Alliance Wakeboard Mag’s page. Check the hotness that IS @JoshPalma.

Josh is seen here riding the 2011 CWB Transcend 140 (currently 40 percent off @BuyWake.com) with 2012 CWB Marius Boots.
